    I have been making my living as an escort for a long time now. I can't honestly say that the life has been bad to me, but now... mainly because I have this really great guy in my life... I'm thinking it might be time to hang up the hooker shoes. The question is, "Where do I go from here?" I have done some retail work, and had a few office jobs, but for the most-part, my income has been from giving handjobs to foreign businessmen... and I can't exactly put that on a resume.

    I live in Los Angeles, where the job market is really pretty competitive in ANY field for someone with experience and a college education. So, imagine my degree of difficulty having never gone to college and, well, the "experience" I listed above.

    So, let me put this question to you guys. Where would one go to gain training for... just off the top of my head... an entry-level data processing job? Hell, I would apply for a job as a janitor if I knew who was hiring.

    I have read a few of the past forum posts regarding opinions about porn actors and escorts, and realize I'm probably just opening myslf up to more criticism than anything, but what the hell... I figure it's worth the shot to get just one piece of useful advice.

    Thanks.

    I'm all for education. Going to school could be a very good option for you.

    However, just like any job. . . Apply, apply, apply

    I started at that data entry job years ago.
    I got it by applying at temp agencies, and eventually one of the clinics I worked at had an opening, and the temp agency placed me there full time.
    Try temp agencies, and make sure you can type!

    Sounds like you have had an interesting career so far.

    To make money, try being a waiter.
    There are always restaurants hiring and you don't need experience to be a waiter, plus in LA, there are so many "actors" who work as waiters that you can pretty much say anything and nobody would care.

    You could start out at a chain restaurant, like Chilli's or Olive Garden and then once you get experience, move to higher end restaurants where you can make more money in tips.

    If you want to get into an office job or warehouse, try applying where there are warehouses, such as Coke Bottling, UPS, distribution companies, grocery chains warehouse distribution centers, etc. These will probably be more long term and have opportunities for advancement.

    www.monster.com is a good resource for looking for jobs, how to interview, what to put in a resume, how to deal with breaks in work history, etc.

    Good luck.
    (I have often wondered what people do for a career when they are in jobs that have limited lifespan)

    I know you obviously have some other skills that dont require a mattress to be strapped to your back. You can always say you have "extensive customer service experience." Put that on your resume.

    You don't say what you want to start doing so it's hard to say.

    If you have a long term goal for a certain career, research the necessary steps to get there. It will likely involve some sort of study. If you have money saved then that will be a blessing for ya, so you can concetrate on getting qualified in whatever field you are aiming for. If not, then maybe an employment agency might be able to get you something at entry level for the time being.

    I guess for the time being you could defintiely say you have people skills (customer service/hospitality?), maybe massage skills (health spa/massage therapist?), time management/travel (courier?) etc... For your past work experience, perhaphs put 'independant massage therapist' or something along those lines? ;p


    Good luck, hopefully you've saved money for the role switch.

    School is always a good place to start. Even if you don't end up doing what you go to school for, the education is always yours to keep.

    Also, make a list of the things that you would want in a job or career.
    Also, make a list of the things that you would not want in a job or career.
    When the right idea comes along, at least you will have criteria against which you can evaluate.

    I used to know this stripper/dancer who was in the same dilemma. He set his mind on getting an entry level government job, janitorial as I recall, and was elated because he would have a regular job, insurance and a pension. Try all levels of govt., state, federal, etc.
    I don't mean to say that all you could get is an entry level position, just that that's what my friend did. Your work has no doubt taught you a lot about people and tact and a lot of other very useful skills. I bet you would be great in a high-ends men's shop for example. Best of luck to you.

    please consider going to my blog at www.devonhunter.info and doing a search on "retirement." you can also consider looking at the category "career advice" at the bottom of the page. in particular you should consider how the interpersonal, business management, and organizational skills you have developed can help you to create a business of your own that makes use of the knowledge you have about people and their many needs (psychological, financial, sexual, spiritual, etc). you might be in a position to be a very good life coach? i do not believe you should stop being an entrepreneur to go work to make someone else rich. you can supply yourself with your own retirement (solo 401-k), your own insurance, and your own salary. if you do want to work for someone else, make a list of the 3 dream jobs you always wanted, and focus on trying to prepare for one of them with certifications and/or on-site internships of some kind.

    good luck in your transition out of the industry (however, i wouldn't suggest anyone give up a career for a relationship, so keep your contacts handy).


    xoxo

    Forgive me for bringing it up, but something doesn't look quite right here. The OP has been a member for a year and five months, has only one pic, no stats, nobody on his Buddy or Hot List, never posted to a thread before. I dunno, but it just looks a bit weird.

    I took a two year hiatus in between signing on and using the website...kinda checked who was in my area, then lost interest. I forget what spurred me to come back, but loved it ever since..
